Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge First Look

This is an unprecedented look at the nonstop life of a cultural luminary. At a time when gender equality and women’s issues are at the forefront, Diane von Furstenberg’s life exemplifies empowerment, resilience, entrepreneurship, and style.

With her unapologetic demeanor, she inspires women. Diane never saw herself as a victim of sexism; rather, she embraced her femininity in a strong and profound way, forging a path for her daughter and the next generation of women to follow.

Few women embody the gravitas, grace, and gusto of the incomparable Diane von Furstenberg. A citizen of the world and the child of a Holocaust survivor, her story and its impact have uplifted people around the globe.

In 1974, DVF transformed not only her destiny but also that of countless women with the introduction of the iconic “wrap dress,” a unique garment that instantly bestowed fashion and confidence upon its wearers, irrespective of their shape, background, or status.

As she approaches the eve of her retrospective exhibition, marking a 50-year distinguished career, Diane von Furstenberg contemplates her pioneering path in a male-dominated realm to erect a multi-million-dollar fashion empire. As an early visionary and influencer, she challenged the status quo with the bold inquiry, “Why can’t a woman do what a man does?”

With resolute determination, she faced various challenges – she was a single woman balancing a career, raising two children, and bravely confronting cancer.

These hurdles didn’t stop her; instead, she embraced them, and they fueled her mission to inspire women everywhere to pursue their lives with equal passion and purpose and design their own lives. DVF was born to be a woman in charge and to inspire other women to take charge of their lives.

The Hulu film is a Sutter Road Picture Company and Particle Projects/Fabiola Beracasa Beckman Media production.
